There's a spaceship... and all of a sudden it's "Also Sprach Zarathustra" playing in the background. Somewhere there's a whole bunch of film geeks trying to explain what's so funny.
"You're not getting me to talk to your ship. That's totally bonkers."
So the TARDIS is being salvaged. To the tune of ... I can almost place the music, but not quite. It sounds like The Cult, but it isn't "Wild Flower" and I don't think it's "Fire Woman", and those are the only two of their songs I can think of at short notice. ... actually, scratch that, I just cheated and looked it up on Wikipedia and it is "Fire Woman". Someone in the production team definitely likes their 1980s music...
All that high-tech gear... and he's using a sledgehammer to try to open an "escape pod"?
Sounds like the Doctor is trying to bribe the salvage crew with their pick of the innards of the TARDIS... This can not end well.
So, all the TARDIS corridors are now looking like an old-fashioned Dalek city. Odd.
"It's bigger..." "... On the inside. I get that a lot."
"Don't get in a spaceship with a madman. Didn't anybody teach you that?"
"Now that's just showing off."
"The History of the Time War". Now could that be any more foreboding if it tried?
This entire episode seems to be a compilation of "all the weird things you could ever think of that would be hiding out way down in the innards of the TARDIS".
"Smart bunch, Time Lords. No dress sense, terrible hats, but smart."
Clara is wearing a very classic-series-looking outfit this week, I've noticed.
"We're in trouble, Clara. Proper trouble."
Now there are solid beams shooting out of the walls at random, right next to people and occasionally right through people. ... Spare a thought for those of us who remember Serenity, why don't you?
"I brought you here to keep you safe. But you died again." "Again?"
"I'm more scared of you right now than anything else in the TARDIS".
"I have piloted this ship for over 900 years." Hmmm... that is definitely going to throw the cat among the pigeons in a few places...
